There will be no Ban while working with free zone companies even if you switch jobs shortly.
But it will be a plus point and white point for your career if you completed a Contract before transferring to another Company.

  2. Changing a visa after completing a contract is not an issue, you will not face any ban if you successfully completed your First Visa Contract.
    If you didn't completed it be aware from Ban because leaving a job without completing a contract will cause an automatic band for 6 months from MOL.
